COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hybrid US/UK pale ale.
With an abundance of hops and a sweet caramel backbone, this is a true session beer. A grassy, nutty and flavourful malt body is balanced by citrusy hops and a touch of spice. Clocking in at 34IBU’s, this beer is just bitter enough to keep the hopheads coming back without being crushingly dry or astringent.

Note: Also available dry hopped as Augusta Ale Extra Hoppy (AAXH).

At Gambrinus Bistro. A hazed copper with a thin beige ring. Citrus and herbal hoppy nose, with bread, toast, and dark fruits as well.A decidedly fruity sweet flavour profile with medium bitterness overall. Medium bodied, quite creamy and soft. Long bitter finish with a metallic twang lingering.Good effort.

As AAXH: A hazed amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, a smooth grainy malt with light floral hops. In mouth, a smooth malt with grainy malts, light honey and floral hops, not bad, but I prefer the original. 6-3-7-3-12.

I tried this beer on tap on April 29, 2011 at ’C’est What" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent golden copper colour with a thin white head that laced well. The aroma was citrus hops, caramel malt, and alittle spice. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour slightly sweet with grapefruity hops. Refreshing and enjoyable.

Pours clear golden with thin white head. Like others here, the word "sessionable" immediately jumped to mind. Dry cereal malt with a bit of a caramel kick to it. Hops are the main story - really grassy/herby. Some citrus. Big bitter kick on the finish.

Cask at Burger Bar. Dry-Hopped Cask version. Pours a slightly hazy gold with an average size long lasting foamy white head. Aroma is nice and hoppy, lots of resiny hops. Flavour is hoppy with an average length bitter finish. Medium bodied. Great stuff, I hope they can have this on cask year-round.
